Breaking from a strictly regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong! And in Joyce Meyer’s Eat the Cookie…Buy the Shoes, you’ll find out why God says it’s ok to eat the cookie.
Many of us believe that unbending discipline is the only sure path to God’s love. We must go to the gym five times a week, never order dessert and don’t even think about buying that dress. Though setting rules is important, it’s also important that we lighten up from time to time and know that God will still be at our side, every step of the way. Balance is the key and every once in awhile it’s OK to break the rules.
